Oooh fingers crossed for you! I’m no good at reading charts but looks promising! I got my BFP on my 3rd cycle trying, and I had absolutley no symptoms…I was actually sure it wasn’t going to be my cycle, when the ones before I was symptom spotting and telling myself I was pregnant!  The TTC journey is a weird rollercoaster, and I wasn’t even on it long. You’ll have to update! I got my first positive test at 7DPO with a FRER – maybe you can test early 🙂

lovetotravel02092017 :  If you’re having symptoms and they’re related to pregnancy, you would get a positive test.  Symptom spotting is so torturous!  During our 9 cycles trying last time, I could have sworn I had every symptom in the book.  It wasn’t until I still had a high bbt on 13dpo did I notice some weird symptoms and tested.  Otherwise, that cycle, I would have had no idea I was pregnant.

lovetotravel02092017 :  LPs are typically anywhere from 10-16 days long for a healthy cycle.  I know, personally, my BBTs would drop either the day of AF or the day before AF.  That’s why when I got to 13dpo on my 9th cycle, I was a bit weirded out because I was fully anticipating my temp to drop by that day.  Taking Charge of Your Fertility recommends waiting for 18 days of high temps to test, but you definitely don’t need to wait that long!

I didn’t have any symptoms until the day I got a positive test at 11dpo.

IMO symptom spotting just stressed me out. The first cycle we tried I was spotting everything and I think I was so stressed out that’s why it didn’t happen. Our second cycle I stopped temping, just used OPK’s because I get ovulation pains and relaxed, I really didn’t think it would happen because we were so relaxed about it and that’s when I got my BFP (I was so convinced I wasn’t pregnant too lol, what a shock).

I will say the day I got my BFP my boobs were sore (I thought it was chest pain from sleeping the wrong way LOL) and I threw up my breakfast and I had nooooo idea that they were symptoms, I thought I was just off that day.

ladyvk :  My boobs were definitely a different kind of sore… almost a stabbing sore.  I was also STARVING at 13dpo.  I never eat breakfast in the mornings, and I suddently NEEDED breakfast, and needed lunch again by 10:30. lol

ladyvk :  Oh no!!!!  I was lucky to keep most of that at bay with loads of carbs. lol. The one time I threw up during pregnancy, it was only because I didn’t eat within an hour of waking up.  I had dropped my stepson off at his mom’s to catch the bus, pulled my car away, and started feeling super nauseous.  Luckily, she only lived 3 minutes from our house so I could throw up in our driveway and not someone else’s!!  Hahahaha

lovetotravel02092017 :  those all sound like great signs to me!! I have just entered my very first TWW and am quite sure I will be a crazy symptom spotting. I always get sore breasts right after ovulating, and here I am 2 DPO and they are really sore and now I’m paranoid that that is a bad sign because I feel like things shouldn’t be going like they normally go lol. Totally illogical but that’s just where my brain is going! Fingers crossed for you!
